1979 High Level Agreement Cyprus

Apr 8, 2021 von

Perhaps Rauf Denktaa acknowledged Glafcos Clerides on 8 November 2001 to propose a personal meeting to see the seriousness of the situation, and in a move that surprised observers. The offer was accepted. After several informal meetings between the two men in November and December 2001, a new unconseable peace process began on 14 January 2002. Initially, the stated objective of the two heads of state and government was to reach an agreement by the beginning of June of this year. However, discussions quickly continued. UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan visited the island in May of that year to try to break the deadlock. Despite this, no agreement has been reached. After a summer break, Annan met again with the two heads of state in the fall, first in Paris and then in New York. In the absence of agreement, the Security Council agreed that the Secretary-General should submit a settlement to both parties.

This would form the basis for further negotiations. The initial version of the UN peace plan was presented by both sides on 11 November 2002. A little less than a month later, and after the changes made by both parties, it was revised (Annan II). It was hoped that the two sides would agree on this plan on the margins of the European Council held in Copenhagen on 13 December. Who recovered from a severe heart operation thought he was above, but refused to participate. As Greece had threatened to veto the entire enlargement process if Cyprus was not included in the first round of accession,[41] the EU had to confirm that Cyprus would join the EU on 1 May 2004, along with Malta and eight other Central and Eastern European countries. The critical provisions of the comprehensive conciliation agreement, approved by both Communities in simultaneous referendums, must have legal certainty, particularly with regard to EU courts and international courts. The guarantee and alliance agreements, which proved effective in preventing the Union from 1974, must remain in force in order to avoid any breaches of the terms of the new transaction agreement. In 1977 and 1979, the two sides managed to conclude two high-level agreements, which remain the basis of the ongoing negotiations.

According to these agreements, the aim of the negotiations is to form a bi-communal, bizonal federation based on the political equality of their two constituent communities. Since then, the negotiations have been conducted under the aegis of the GOOD offices mission of the Secretary-General of the United Nations.
